Emails and phone calls to the school are no longer accepted for student absences. The parent must fill out the CPS attendance absence form (in English or Spanish) and be submitted to the school. Otherwise, the parent must provide a written explanation detailing the student's name, ID #, a reason for the absence, the dates for absence and parent contact information and signature.
Emphasis is placed upon good attendance and punctuality. Parents will be contacted when a student is absent from school. Students are expected to attend all classes during the school day. Students who accumulate excessive class cuts will be referred to the discipline office. Consequences for cutting class include parent conferences, in-school suspension and out of school suspension. Full and half day attendance is based on the number of classes a student attends that day. A student who misses a class without a valid reason receives a cut for that class and may be charged with ½ day of absence.Parents are encouraged to check their child’s progress in the parent portal.
